Watch this video with Brené Brown and Chase Jarvis and at minute 11:18, Brené talks about Makers and Creatives being EVERYONE. She goes on to say that “Unused creativity, creativity that’s been disowned, is not benign.” BOOM. That sent chills. That’s the entire reason I wrote “Dear Artist” and why I had to write it first, before anything else. I had to at least tell myself that I was an artist and that it was imperative that I put my work out there.
